Now Online: "Gita Changes" for Chapter Three
Posted February 24, 2010
"The changes" for chapter three of Bhagavad-Gita As It Is are now online at www.BBTedit.com/changes.
Perhaps the most notable feature of this chapter is that the revisions to the purports are so few. As in the rest of the book, when revisions are warranted they are made, and otherwise the text is left unchanged. In this chapter fewer revisions are needed, so fewer are made.
Still, there are several revisions worth seeing.
- Four places where a typist has skipped from one occurrence of a word to the next--for example, from "teach" to "teach"--leaving out the text in between. The second edition restores the missing text.
This happens twice in the purport to text 20 and once each in the purports to texts 30 and 37.
You'll also see:
- What Srila Prabhupada actually said about duties that "complement one's psychophysical condition." (purport to text 35)
The changes for the Preface, the Introduction, and the previous chapters are already online. See them all at www.BBTedit.com/changes.
